iPhone : The Conservatives’ irresponsible approach to support for areas under local restrictions caused chaos and confusion in the autumn.

Now it’s set to leave Tier 3 areas across the North and the Midlands in the lurch again.

Have ministers learned nothing?

Twitter Web App : The government's irresponsible approach to support for businesses in restricted areas is causing real frustration.

Now ministers are repeating the same mistakes as we come out of lockdown. Business need clarity, not more last-minute decisionmaking. thenorthernecho.co.uk/news/18904551.…

iPhone : The British people shouldn’t have to carry the can for a Government that’s wasted and mismanaged billions of pounds of public money during this crisis.

iPhone : It is grossly unfair that local businesses in Liverpool, Greater Manchester and elsewhere are set to lose out compared to areas that have spent less time in restrictions.

Yet again, the Conservatives are forgetting the North and the Midlands.

iPhone : We are in the deepest recession in the G7, with 2.6 million people facing unemployment next year.

We need a determined focus on jobs and growth - yet the Government is choosing to freeze key workers pay and choke off the economic recovery.

Twitter Media Studio : Today the Chancellor who clapped for key workers repaid our police officers, fire fighters and many others with a pay freeze.

He’s taking a sledgehammer to consumer confidence when the economy is so weak.

Another irresponsible choice.

Twitter Web App : Today confirmed:

🇬🇧The UK is in the worst downturn in the G7
📅Our economy won't recover until end of 2022
⌛️No Brexit deal with less than 40 days to go

The Chancellor's response? A hammer blow to people's pockets that will do even more economic damage.

Totally irresponsible.

Twitter Web App : Today the Chancellor said our economic emergency has just begun. Try telling that to the people who have been out of work since March.

His failure to take responsible choices today to recover jobs, retrain workers and rebuild business will make Britain’s jobs crisis worse. #SR20

Twitter Web App : Today’s Spending Review is a moment to make responsible choices to set our country on the path to recovery. The Chancellor must use it.

iPhone : The Tories talk about levelling up, but the reality is that they've been letting people down. We need urgent action to recover jobs, retrain workers and rebuild business in every part of the country 👇🏿👇🏿

iPhone : We need a relentless focus on jobs and growth, not irresponsible tax rises and spending cuts.

iPhone : Today’s Spending Review is a moment to make responsible choices to set our country on the path to recovery.

We need a relentless focus on jobs and growth to get the economy back on its feet again.

That means action to recover jobs, retrain workers and rebuild business.

iPhone : A decade of broken promises from the Conservatives:

🏡Starter Homes
Cost: £192m
Homes: 0

🌳Garden Bridge
Cost: £53.5m
Bridge: 0

🚄Northern Powerhouse Rail
Announced: 2014
Delivered: ???

Instead of action to make a difference to people’s lives, they've let Britain down.

iPhone : Todays Spending Review is a moment for responsible choices to get the economy back on its feet.

We need a relentless focus on jobs and growth and action to make our country the best place to grow up in and the best place to grow old in.

Twitter Web App : The Conservatives’ irresponsible choices have wasted and mismanaged billions, pushed the UK into the worst downturn in the G7 and created a jobs crisis.

Today we need a relentless focus on jobs and growth to get the economy back on its feet. Action - not words.

Twitter Web App : Two unanswered questions for starters:

1. Will areas spending weeks in Tier 3 have to survive on the same amount of discretionary business support as everywhere else?

2. When will the Govt come clean on whether it will increase the employer contribution to furlough in January?
